I know just about nothing about spiders, but I just found this one in
my yard and would like to find some more info on it. I live in
Southwestern Ontario (Canada). The spider was about 1.5cm in diameter
and its mouthparts reflect a pretty greenish color.

Here are some (fuzzy) photos from a few angles:

        Thanks, both of you. I used the info and web searches turned
up tones of great info on Phiddipus audax and jumping spiders in
general. I'm amazed at the diversity and beauty of this group of
spiders. I think I've maybe stumbled upon a new hobby. :)
